    They are sooo sweet - good to see them looking so well after their rather shaky start.

    How cute! I want some baby duckies! Chickens are so silly, they will go run off a cat, stand in front of moving cars, peck at a garter snake and raise a storm about a garden hose that isn't on the reel. Now they are afraid of ducklings!

    Quote:This is hilarious! I saw the reverse. My ducks are one week older than my second batch of chickens -- and it was the duckies who were terrified when first I put them together. "Bless their little hearts." [​IMG]

    Ten minutes later, the ducks finally realized that one week old chickies are pretty oblivious. Later that day they were all snuggling together. Good luck!

    They are soooo cute. Do you ever have to worry about those turtles attacking the ducklings?

    They are so cute. I have some of them to, but mine have the crests on their heads.[​IMG]

    Oh, that's sweet! We used to have a yard full of ducks when I was growing up. I'd love to have some!

    Hi Andy, well these little duckies won't be going out on the bayou till the are full grown.That's my excuse for getting a kiddie pool. [​IMG] I'd be more worried about the water snakes around here.
    kybukabu, that's funny. Some of my chickens chase the cats & my poor dogs & then they are teriffied of three baby ducks. [​IMG]
